The Counter Press

Our friends over at The Counter Press have just released issue 2 of their beautiful ‘little letterpress newspaper’ Extra Condensed No.2.

Issue No.2 of Extra Condensed has a particularly numerical theme: from the origins of ‘spitting image’ to Stephenson Blake’s charming San Serif No.7, via a wander through the peculiar world of letter frequency and the printing of issue No.1.Every article also features its own pilcrow, each taken from a different fount in our collection.

Written, designed, typeset and printed by hand in a limited edition of just 200 (although this still involved over 2250 hand pulled prints). Each issue is individually numbered and comes in a custom printed envelope.

Available to buy in their shop. Making of film shot by Martin Power. Lovely!
